Loaded Seven-Fight Undercard For Thursday’s Event, Live
On NBC Sports Network & Twitch
Ring City USA has announced a loaded seven-fight undercard
for this Thursday’s event, the third and final of the boxing
outfit’s residency in Puerto Rico, which will be presented
live from Plaza del Quinto Centenario in Old San Juan. The
March 25 event will be broadcast live at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT
on NBC Sports Network and NBC Sports app in the United
States and Puerto Rico. Outside the United States, Ring
City’s undercard action will be available on Twitch.
Headlining Thursday’s event from Old San Juan is the
previously announced 10-round title fight featuring
seven-division world champion and future Hall of Famer
Amanda Serrano (39-1-1, 29 KOs) defending her WBO and WBC
featherweight world titles against current two-division
titlist Daniela Bermudez (29-3-3, 10 KOs).
Co-featured on the NBC Sports Network broadcast, in an
eight-round bantamweight clash, Puerto Rico’s Abimael ‘Manos
de Piedra’ Ortiz (8-0-1, 4 KOs) battles Mexico-born Eduardo
‘Lalo El Gemelo’ Baez (18-1-2, 6 KOs), who now fights out of
Calexico, Calif. A resident of Cidra, Puerto Rico, Ortiz has
won six fights in a row, including a ten-round unanimous
decision over former world title challenger Chris Avalos in
his most recent start on November 30, 2019. Baez is
undefeated over his last ten bouts and returns to the Ring
City USA ring following an eight-round unanimous decision
over previously unbeaten Narek Abgaryan on the December 17,
2020 card at the Wild Card Boxing Gym in Los Angeles.
Also featured on the NBC Sports Network card is an
eight-round battle in the super-bantamweight division when
hard-hitting Carlos ‘Purin’ Caraballo (13-0-0, 13 KOs) of
Ponce, P.R., hits the squared circle against Leonardo ‘Leon’
Baez (18-3-0, 9 KOs) of Mexicali, Mexico. The 25-year-old
Caraballo has earned a well-deserved reputation for his
show-stopping knockouts, eight of which have come in the
first three rounds. He returns to action following a
first-round knockout of perennial contender Mike Oliver in
February 2020 in San Juan, P.R. Also 25-years-old, the
upset-minded Baez looks to return to the win column after
suffering a loss to Jason Moloney in June 2020 following a
six-fight win streak.
Headlining the Twitch portion of the broadcast, Juan Carlos
‘El Indio’ Camacho (11-1, 6 KOs) of Juana Diaz, P.R.,
clashes with Marvin Solano (23-5, 8 KOs) in a scheduled
eight-round bantamweight bout. The 24-year-old Camacho
anxiously returns to battle following a 15-month layoff. His
last fight against Lucas Fernandez Leone in October 2019 was
cut short in the fourth round due to a cut suffered by Leone
as a result of an accidental headbutt. Fighting out of the
boxing hotbed of Managua, Nicaragua, Solano is victorious in
two of his last three fights, including a 10-round unanimous
decision over contender Dewayne Beamon in November 2019.
Competing in an eight-round junior middleweight bout, two
San Juan natives will battle when Luis Midyael ‘Diamante
Negro’ Sanchez (8-1, 6 KOs) faces Ryan Pino (8-5-2, 4 KOs).
The 26-year-old Sanchez, victorious in his first eight
professional bouts, looks to re-enter the win column
following a hotly contested eight-round defeat against
Patrick Cora. The Bronx, New York-bred Pino also looks to
hit the win column after an eight-round decision loss to
Kevin Johnson in February 2020.
Hitting the squared circle in a six-round flyweight bout,
highly touted prospect Oscar Collazo (2-0, 2 KOs) of
Villaiba, P.R. challenges veteran Francisco ‘El Remanche’
Bonilla (6-9-3, 3 KOs) of Chihuahua, Mexico. Following a
heralded amateur career including a gold medal at the 2019
Pan American Games, the Newark, New Jersey born Collazo has
quickly impressed in the professional ranks, most recently
scoring a second-round knockout against Kevin Jusino in
Fighting in an eight-round women’s flyweight bout, former
three-time world champion Arely ‘Ametralladora’ Mucino-Reyes
(28-3-2, 10 KOs) of Monterrey, Mexico battles Lucia
‘Maravilla’ Hernandez-Nunez (7-10) of Mexico City, Mexico.
Victorious in her last seven fights, Mucino-Reyes is coming
off of a nearly two-year layoff as she starts the path
toward regaining a world championship. In her last start
Hernandez-Nunez won a hard-fought six round decision over
Esmeralda Torres on November 16, 2019.
Opening up the action on the Twitch portion of the broadcast
in a four-round lightweight bout, 19-year-old Angel
Carranza-Jimenez (1-0, 1 KO) of Hatillo, P.R. faces off
against battle-tested veteran Eduardo Melendez (5-29, 1 KO)
of Ponce, P.R.
